Boston Weekend: Shows and Office Hours

Hey kids. Couple things. I'm in Boston doing a few appearances this weekend, and I'm very excited to return to my creative home. For you Facebookers: info is in this event. Friday at The Comedy Studio Friday April 25th The Comedy Studio 1238 Mass Ave, 3rd Floor of the Hong Kong Harvard Square, Cambridge MA you should make reservations I'll probably head over to Cambridge 1 afterward to eat and sip on some wine and hold palaver Saturday Office Hours! Office Hours Return! Back in college, I used to host office hours in my dorm because I liked pretending I was a professor. It was a time for people who knew me but not each other could gather and unite over a common enemy. A few months back, I did the same thing in San Fran to a rousing success. I reconnected with old friends and both cracked and jailbroke my iPhone, so back in the town where it all started, I proudly present the return of Baratunde's Office Hours Saturday noon-4pm-ish Diesel Cafe, Davis Square, Somerville MA Saturday Night At Harvard What could be more fun than a Saturday night at an Ivy League university? How about a Saturday night at an Ivy League university during pre-frosh weekend overwhelmed by the swarm of acne-riddled high school seniors? That's what I'm talking about! Harvard Standup Comics Society 8-10pm Science Center C Admission: $1 Other things going on in my life. I've been on Comedy Central.com again talking about the PA primary. This was recorded before it happened I'm taking a vacation from my obsessive blogging of this election because I'm a bit exhausted and, yes, bitter.

Flashback: My First Message To My Yahoo Group Standup List (2002)

Today I got a notice from Yahoo Groups that someone was unsubscribing from my "baratunde-standup" list. I set this thing up in 2002 and last used it then. It was when I first started doing standup. I looked back to the very first message, and here's what I found:
Subject: Baratunde LIVE again??? Defying all conventional wisdom as well as environmental considerations, the good people at The Comedy Studio have invited me back after my performance of exactly one month ago. This is rather significant for me, considering that my last performance there was due only to my being in a comedy class. But not this time. This time, it's a REAL GIG. With REAL audience members. And REAL tomatoes. So why am I telling you this? Well, many of you owe me money and/or favors. Your presence at my show would go a long way toward forgiving some of this debt. Others of you just had the ill-considered fortune to leave your email addresses within my grasp. For those who saw the last show, I'll be doing SOME of the same material, but I'm mixing it up with a little something new. This Friday May 31 The Comedy Studio 3rd Floor of the Hong Kong Restaurant in Harvard Square 8pm cover between $7 - $10 based on level of body odour lata, \[email address removed] comedian / writer / tech-geek www.baratunde.com
For my Boston folks, I'll be returning the weekend of April 25th for a show at The Comedy Studio, where it all started six years ago.
